James Wilson

James Wilson

James Wilson is a professional musician with over 20 years’ experience in the Australian music industry. He has toured extensively throughout Australia and South East Asia and over this time he has shared the stage with many of this countries iconic Rock performers such as James Reyne (Australian Crawl), Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool/Mondo Rock), Ian Moss (Cold Chisel), Jon Stevens (Noiseworks) Joe Camilerri (Black Sorrows), Jessica Mauboy (Australian Idol) and Karise Eden (The Voice).

James’ versatility is one of his main strengths. A typical week could see him don a suit and tie for an audience of 5000 at a corporate function at Domain Stadium, fly to remote Western Australia to play for a 1000 man FIFO mining camp, return to Perth the following day to play live and DJ at a wedding and finish the working week with a 3 hour gig at the local pub.

His extraordinary stage set up combines musical excellence with astounding co-ordination as he manages to play a range of percussion and wind instruments, guitar and soaring vocals, all at the same time. There is one person on stage producing the sound of three. It truly needs to be seen to be believed.

James was incredible!!!! Can not fault him at all, from his promptness to his easy-going nature and wow his voice was unbelievable. Please pass on a huge thanks to James. I had lots of feedback from clients and colleagues on how amazing James was!

We LOVED James! He absolutely made our wedding. Everyone loved him and people have been asking who he is and where he is playing next. We will be looking out for where he plays. He now has a new fan club.
He is an awesome laid back guy and we were so happy we got him.
You guys made the process so easy. I have passed details onto my friend who is getting married next.

As always, James is absolutely great and amazing and it was such a delight to work with him again, he is fabulous and his voice is amazing and his kind nature makes it such a pleasure to work with him.

Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to him again – loved working with him and thanks again for helping me to create a wonderful experience for our Bankwest colleagues and guests.

Looking forward to working with him again at our next event!

James was awesome as always. That’s why he’s my got to entertainer for any event I have. He’s very easy to work with, just turns up and does his thing without any hassles and is entertaining to watch with all his instruments. Our guests always comment on him whenever we have him at an event. Quite a few guests took his business card so hopefully he gets some more gigs in the future. Would have him back for any event without a doubt.

We had James Wilson perform at our wedding on Saturday night for both the ceremony and reception. We wanted a party with an epic dance floor and we got just that thanks to James. He read the crowd and played all the hits. Everyone commented on how perfect he was. Definitely made the night! Thanks James!

James was fantastic – he is really professional. The people loved his music! I have attached some photos, they are not the best but maybe he can use them.

James was absolutely brilliant!
He was amazing, every single guest commented on how great his music was. The crowd favourite was in the air tonight! They loved the didgeridoo!
James played to the crowd and we were on the dance floor until we were kicked out of the venue.
James was an awesome MC. He listened to everything we said/suggest and he made the night.
Honestly he was just perfect, Ben and I still talking about him now. We would recommended him to anyone.
Thanks so much.
